With his yard in outstanding form, Courtandbould, who was placed in his final two starts between the flags, is one to note. Fort Summer didn't show much in points and was soon beaten in a Southwell bumper last month though his yard has struck form while Shirocco Sunflower made a reasonable debut at Uttoxeter and looks best of those with experience. Getaway Luv is bred to be a staying hurdler, a remark that also applies to Osprey Call, whose dam was a winning hurdler. LOUGHAN is by Yeats and the first foal of a winning jumper and could be good enough to make a successful debut.
